Some of Mencken's most interesting letters were written to George Sterling, a pupil of Ambrose Bierce. The correspondence- which survives nearly intact on both sides- covers a wealth of subjects, including Mencken's editorship of the 'Smart Set' (1914-23) and 'American Mercury' (1924-26), mutual colleagues (Bierce, Theodore Dreiser, Jack London, Sinclair Lewis), and most entertainingly, each author's flagrant flouting of Prohibition as wel as Sterling's carnal adventures with a variety of women in California. These letters shed a vivid light on the literary, political, social, and cultural temper of the Jazz Age.
